Damn... tough choice, really tough. I guess I have to vote null as well, as either game focuses on a completely different aspect of fighting (technical body physics and da hooch), and both are crazy awesome.

toribash is by FAR the better game, as you can get better/develop skills/etc..

they're both great fun for the first few minutes, but sumotori is sadly too random, you can't really "get good" at it.

Sumotori! At least with that and a roomful of nicely toasted people we actually feel like we're getting good at it. Toribash is too much for me, I mean I enjoy fighting games the most when it's me and some friends, and Toribash takes MUCH too long for me to be able learn how to kick some ass, never mind training up everyone else so that we're decent competition.

toribash is impressive and all but sumotori is far more entertaining and to crunch it all into 96k is herculean.

Sumotori wins!
Blogger Raigan said at 7/15/2007 02:54:00 PM:  
there's NO WAY that all you people voting for sumotori have played it for more than a few minutes.

come on -- toribash has online multiplayer!! sumotori is fun, but it's just a minigame compared to toribash. really!

i'm guessing the problem is that everyone's only played about 5min of each.. you should try playing each for 2 hours and see which you think is the better game.

Sumotori is a fun, free little software toy that's great for 15-20 minutes of belly laughs, but Toribash is an excellent online game with a solid community and tons of mods.

Toribash has more gore and replayability. Toribash ftw.
Anonymous RbLcK said at 7/15/2007 05:37:00 PM:  
I choose toribash just because of it having a much longer play time. Sumo tori doesn't offer as much as toribash does. Sumotori is just not as responsive and is just something you can watch for 20 minutes.

Toribash. Sumotori is alright, and its fun, but Toribash has online multiplayer, items you can buy ingame that alter your ingame character, mods and scripts made by the players, and alot more. :D
Anonymous Groad said at 7/15/2007 05:40:00 PM:  
Toribash all the way. Sumotori isn't fun at all, I don't see whats so great about it. You actually have to have skill in toribash.
Anonymous Anonymous said at 7/15/2007 05:41:00 PM:  
The fact that you have to pay for Toribash is what puts me off. And, yes, you strangely can get good at Sumotori. I vote Sumotori.

Toribash hands down, I haven't been able to play anything else since I started playing it.
Blogger Dr_Strangelove said at 7/15/2007 05:50:00 PM:  
as a faithfull toribashian i must insist that toribash is by a long way the better game. Its exciting and sophisticated fights, and the complicated array of all the different possibilities in openers makes the gameplay comparable to chess. i dont really need to say anything about that other game...
Blogger munin said at 7/15/2007 06:08:00 PM:  
For instant gratification, sumotori is undoubtedly the winner. Toribash might be deeper but it's just not fun for me.
Anonymous LonelyDucky said at 7/15/2007 07:16:00 PM:  
Toribash definitely keeps you coming for more. It's a fun, innovative game with a good player base and offers more than just a few minutes of gameplay.
Anonymous GrarRR said at 7/15/2007 07:29:00 PM:  
Toribash, because of the amount control it gives the player, allows the player to do whatever he wants, which IMO is the most unique part of this game. :D
Anonymous Spencer135 said at 7/15/2007 07:51:00 PM:  
ROFL, are you kidding me? sumotori is just a silly little minigame, It's nothing compared to toribash.

Sumotori is a thing to do when you have 5 minutes of spare time. Toribash is the same, but is much more developed, addictive and has a larger community. Much, much larger.
Blogger Qegola said at 7/15/2007 10:56:00 PM:  
Sumotori, while entertaining for maybe an hour, just doesn't give a massive feeling of replayability. Its just too simple.

Toribash, however... Whereas its not exactly easy to pick up, just seeing what you can do is reason enough to try. That, mixed with a myriad of different mods and game settings for online multiplayer, and a growing community makes Toribash a clear winner for me.
Anonymous Anonymous said at 7/15/2007 10:59:00 PM:  
Sumotori is interesting and entertaining, but it just doesn't feel fleshed out. Toribash is a full-fledged, in-depth game. True, it lacks the visual polish of more mainstream games, but it is the sheer fluid adaptability that lends it's pervassive addictiveness.

these are two completely different games with different goals. i don't see how you can measure one against the other.

Definetly Toribash, Toribash is better, deeper, and requires more skill.

I've played both alot, and i gotta say Toribash wins without a doubt. The physics in toribash is stunning, plus it is so customizable that you never get tired of it.
Anonymous Jok said at 7/16/2007 02:20:00 AM:  
Toribash by far. Not only is it longer than Sumotori, with Multiplayer, and mods, scripts, joint colours, blood colours, etc, but it also has a much better community. For those complaining about Toribash paying, keep in mind that the Toribash servers are maintained from that money that you pay. And not only that but you can even compromise if you absolutely can't pay. Register on the forums, post as much as you can, sell signatures, head textures and whatever you can and gain 20,000 "toricredits". The 20k can be used to buy a registration key. It's not that hard to get a reg key. It's pretty easy compared to some other games.

Sumotori has this cool AI which tries to balance the player, it's fun to watch, spontaneous and accessible! Toribash is just stick figures and elastic bands.

Drunk sumo action FTW!!!
Anonymous PsYcHZ said at 7/16/2007 03:27:00 AM:  
Toribash is better hands down! There is just no other fighting game that can compete. Especially with the features and new updates coming regularly! Physics are amazing, and the customization is as well. Those include Head textures, blood color, and body part colors.

Toribash is certianly more fun than sumotori, all you do in sumotori is push paper over, yet toribash, you can rip their limbs off, THEN push them over.

Toribash better. More gore, more madness.

Toribash, definently Toribash. Sumotori Doesnt have the variety and the fun that Toribash provides with its multiplayer ability.

To me SumoTori has only ever apeared as a quick game and it doesnt have the expandibilty, customability and creativity that TB lets its players release.
Anonymous Imsku said at 7/16/2007 04:00:00 AM:  
This is like a ufc fighter versus a retarded baby. D: (no offense to sumotori people)

I never got bored of toribash. Toribash for the wiiin.

I can't decide between the two, apart from the aim of knocking your opponent down they are too different to each other to even attempt to say one is better than the other.
Anonymous ADTerminal said at 7/16/2007 07:52:00 AM:  
Obviously Toribash.

Sumotori is just really a minigame, and will be forgotten in a few months.

Blogger Alex said at 7/16/2007 10:28:00 AM:  
Since Sumotori is still more of a tech demo, my vote for "better game" has to be Toribash.

Both have hilarious content though.

Ummm Toribash wins automatically seeing as anyone can play it, not just windows users.

And to me it just looks like you walk around bumping into the other guy hoping you push him over, where's the fun?

You can be Sumo wrestlers in Toribash, but in Toribash the Sumo wrestlers can be decapitated.
Anonymous TSR said at 7/16/2007 04:09:00 PM:  
Toribash is by far the best, skill is used to determine the outcome, but in Sumotori (name theft) the game is mostly random. The shooting mini game is the best bit.
Anonymous DaMehMan said at 7/16/2007 08:54:00 PM:  
You can push people on sumotori. Whoop-dee-fricking-doo. In Toribash, you can kick their heads off. Decapitation>pushing. Toribash, no doubt.
